Why do we celebrate Labor Day?

As you talk with your students about holidays and, perhaps, what they did over the Labor Day holiday, consider giving them a brief history lesson!

The History Channel has a great series on YouTube of short video clips explaining holidays. They have great application for education. Here is their video on The History of Labor Day:

Also, Ted ED has an interesting, short, video on why Americans and Canadians celebrate Labor Day.

Think about viewing these with your students as you hear them talking about what they did on their day off!
